Covers, guys and girls.
The Fearless Defenders #3
Cover by Mark Brooks
All that’s missing is the karate chop action.
Manhattan Projects #10
Cover by Jonathan Hickman
The guys at my shop call this one the Strawberry Shortcake issue. But really, given the context, I’m reminded of a virus. Inside, Red Oppenheimer cannibalized the Blue Oppenheimer, consuming him body and soul. Eventually, Blue learns to reprogram the assumed souls, mounting an Oppenheimer civil war. It’s trippy. It’s color-coded. I dig it.
Cover by Greg Capullo
Alfred really needs to contact that chimney sweep about the Bat Cave’s bird problem.
Where is Jake Ellis #3
Cover by Tonci Zonjic
He’s right there! I love the elegant implementation of typography and color in this series. Each cover is cued to a specific color overwhelmed by shadow. This one is a particularly strong representative for the series as it’s all about tracking, hunting, answering the question: Where is Jake Ellis?
Uncanny X-Men #3
Cover by Chris Bachalo
Always a fan of destructible title logos, and this one actually serves a narrative purpose. Is Magneto destroying this X-Men group from the inside? Is he manipulating its many factions to recombine them in a stronger whole?
Nowhere Men #4
Cover by Nate Bellegarde & Fonografiks
While this image finds greater resonance in the closing pages of this issue, it’s also a perfect visualization of the main conflict. These scientists are experiencing a shift, a major reconfiguration of their genetic code as well as their place in the world. Everything is in flux.
